FULL-TIME: Bengal Warriors beat UP Yoddha 38-33

A game that gathered steam towards the end of the first half belonged to the Bengal Warriors in the second 20 minutes, with Mohammad Nabibakhsh putting in an all-round show to fuel his side's win. 

Pardeep Narwal's unimpressive debut for UP Yoddha was one of the biggest stories to come out of the game, with the star raider spending quite some time watching on from the benches rather than raiding on the mat. Eventually, none of the UP players came to the party, fuelling Bengal's charge throughout. 
40' Surender Gill comes in for the final raid, and he induces a false tackle from Darshan to pick up the last point of the match.

HALF-TIME: Bengal Warriors 18 - 18 UP Yoddha

A half that's had intense action, with both teams trading blows. However, the story has revolved around schoolboy errors from the defensive units, and the corner defenders will look to be a lot more careful to avoid gifting away easy points to the opposition. 

Pardeep Narwal (6) and Maninder Singh (4) haven't set the stage on fire, can we expect them to do well in the second half? Time will tell!
